First International Workshop on

Pervasive Systems (PerSys'06)

Oct 30 - Oct 31, 2006
Montpellier, France

In conjunction with OnTheMove Federated Conferences (OTM'06)

Proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS

We are pleased to announce the first International workshop on Pervasive Systems, targeted at researchers in mobile, pervasive computing and related fields, computer scientists, students and IT professionals. The workshop will give participants a broad and deep understanding of the multitude of issues involved in the design, implementation and evaluation of pervasive systems with a particular emphasis on the state of the research in the area and the availability of tools.


Topics of interest may include one or more of the following (but are not limited to) themes;

  • Software infrastructure, middleware, agent technologies and frameworks
  • Device technologies
  • Communication technologies
  • Sensor networks and RFIDs
  • Location sensing and management
  • Context-aware computing
  • Privacy, security and trust
  • Pervasive services
  • Attentive environments
  • Programming paradigms
  • User interfaces and interaction models
  • Mobile and wireless systems and services
  • Analysis, design, implementation and evaluation techniques


Papers submitted to PerSys must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All submissions must be in English. Submissions should be in PDF format and must not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format. Author's instructions can be found at:

The paper submission site is located at:

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.


Authors of selected papers from PerSys06 will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for possible publication in the Pervasive and Mobile Computing Journal. A fast-track review system will be used, thus enabling a fast turnaround.
